    Everyone is lawyering up. Paula Broadwell, the biographer whose affair with former CIA head David Petraeus led to his resignation, has hired Washington, D.C. public relations firm Glover Park Group to represent her as she navigates the fallout from the scandal. Jill Kelley, the woman who reported Broadwell to the FBI, is being represented by trial lawyer Abbe Lowell, whose previous clients include John Edwards and Jack Abramoff.
